, at of the retailers of course. but monster, another big one we're watching. but energy drinks as a category is linked to adverse events and hospitalizations which is not a good thing when you're in that industry, you're looking at potential. and maybe warning labelis which are not a good thing either. >> the corner of a -- it's a triangle, jim. >> there's no resting place. here's the deal with monster. monster's last conference call, they did this remarkable test versus starbucks, and said they had less caffeine than starbucks, i actually bought a box of them at costco. i had to save them for -- and no, i mean these are really, i think, off the reservation, the five-hours. >> to say they have less caffeine than -- if i were a consumer looking for a caffeine jolt, they're saying that starbucks has more caffeine and is not linked to any adverse events. but starbucks is saying why are you lumping us into the 5-hour. maybe you should have -- at the same time the government is a -- the government doesn't come in and say, you know what? we like some energy drinks and not others. we don't like energy drinks

can burn off the inventory. clean energy fuels had them on last night. why focus on this? they have a clear growth path to build out stations. lloyd blankfein said in his editorial that key thing for growth in our country is energy. abundant energy. i thought we should look at clean energy that would benefit. markwest, this is a company that has a price above where they did secondary. look at the "wall street journal" word on the street. they say that maybe mlps have been oversold. if we're going to drill in this country for more energy, i like to think of halliburton down to 30. some people will say weatherford upgraded by a number of people and then let's not forget chesapeake. they came out this morning in a piece last night said we're more nat gas than i would like to be in ohio. when i spent time in ohio, 80% of what we put out on rigs is nat gas. you need the markwest pipeline to take natural gas to chesapeake to bring it to the east or to give it to clean energy fuels and in order to be able to drill oil, that's halliburton. that's the family of names that i'm focused on. >>

in the oil market where the international energy agency has released another monthly report saying they see the global demand growth for oil sliding in this quarter and next year. they reduced the forecast there. we're also seeing production that is coming back online from the north sea. that's pressuring present crude prices and we expect to see another increase in crude supplies here in the u.s. for the weekly supply report. that also adding pressure to the wti contract. the only bright spark in the marketplace is natural gas. it is up for the second straight session. and there we may see a withdrawal from storage. first of the season as we get into the winter months. colder temperatures ahead also could help prop up natural gas futures. we're going to get that report on thursday from the energy information administration. i'm trying to get my acronyms straight here. on thursday we'll also get the oil report. it's going to come a day later because of the veterans day holiday. back to you guys. >> there are a lot of letters in your part of the world. >> there are. there are. >> thanks a lo

thoughts. . let's check out latest moves in energies and metals. i don't know if gold going up is good. >> let's look at oil first because oil is basically unchanged from where it was yesterday at the close. not much has changed in terms of what traders are paying attention to. they're looking, as mary mentioned, at the fiscal cliff and worries over that as well as worries over what's happening in europe. that's weighing on the market. even the positive data out of china was not enough to boost crude oil prices. the part of the energy sector seeing some momentum, it's gasoline futures. today gasoline rationing has hit new york city. mayor bloomberg putting that into effect. can you only fill up on every other day based on your license plate number so that's something traders are talking about as well because many traders here on this floor are affected by that. we're also looking at gold prices at a tree-week high. it may not be a good thing because it's a safe haven bid. tradesers worried about the fiscal cliff. also thinking maybe we'll see more accommodative policy, another reason t

so much. the latest news in energy and metals. i hope oil comes back up. let's go to sharon epperson at the nymex. >> jim, we are seeing more trade in the oil market but that's after the biggest one-day dollar and percentage decline we have seen all year in the price of crude oil. we are looblging at oil prices right around the $85 a barrel mark here and looking at some support perhaps of the greek austerity plan and also some weakness that could pressure prices based on the economic data out of germany. we're continuing to watch the volatility here in the oil complex but when you look at it, really, we're right where we were at friday's close so basically where we started the week. also keeping our eye on the gold price. the key level traders say is 1721 for gold and the high we reached earlier in the session in this session and we're continuing to watch whether or not the fact that we're going to give a continuation of the fed monetary policy wins out over the overall weakness this week in the complex. keeping our eye on it. natural gas also coming up. back to you. >> thank you, sh
